This workshop offers the opportunity to explore the design concepts and fabrication techniques important to an assemblage approach to jewelry making. FOS introduces an unusual cold connection system from which, students can extrapolate other jewelry engineering solutions.
Mann will lead workshop participants in the creation of their own found object creations. Students are encouraged to bring photographs (old, new or magazine) and found objects such as buttons, heirloom jewelry or materials they find on the streets or in nature, and industrial materials (chain, electronic parts, etc.). to incorporate in the design and fabrication of a personal wearable expression.
Note: this workshop requires participants to know “How to Saw” using a jewelers saw. Depending on the skill level and experience of the participants, Tom may spend the first several hours of an FOS instructing his “Learn to Saw” technique. In a One Day workshop this can consume a substantial percentage of the day.
